It’s a fallacy that only the male actors or the heroes practice method acting in Bollywood. The heroines are equally diligent and dedicated as the heroes of Bollywood, if not more. Here are five examples when the heroines went through method acting in Bollywood.
Mary Kom: This role required Priyanka Chopra to reprise the role of a boxer and she went through intense physical training for that role.
The Dirty Picture: Vidya Balan literally ate and slept according to the life and times of Silk Smitha while preparing for the role.
Akira: Sonakshi Sinha was supposed to do some intense physical training for Akira. She had to go through intense workout regime.
Fashion: Kangana Ranaut went through method acting to get under the skin of the character of a depressed model.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns: Again Kangana Ranaut. She went through intense training for the double role which required her to play an athlete.
